To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Order the one with the SD card capabilities. Got a different one with no SD card slot. If I returned it back to the US as directed I would have been out of pocket overall due to the high cost of postage because of the ion batteries. Small screw to secure it to wall bracket missing. Double sided tape not very strong.
Installation: Very easy, drill the four holes and screw the base on. It has a small security screw to hold the bell to the unit, but the screw is tiny, one drop and it's lost for ever.
Setup: Simply download the app, register and scan the code using the bell camera.
Use: Very simple to use, easy to understand but has some issues.
* You can share the functions with somebody if they sign up, but you cannot share it with your second device on the same account. * The bell ringing will only show up as a call if you have the app open. When the app is closed all you get is a popup. You won't see the popup if the phone is just laying there. * The motion sensor even on low picks up people walking across the street. There's also a delay with he recording, so for example if somebody walks past the door it only shows it 1 second after they have passed. You end up with many MANY videos of nothing.
Should you buy this? If you are home a lot I would say no. Buy a cheap peephole camera instead. If you are away a lot I would say yes. You can look back at the videos to see who was at you door.
I was worried to get a cheaper camera than the ring doorbell! Just set it up and can honestly say that it does everything the ring does. All family members have the app and can use simultaneously to me, camera is clear, has sleep mode, rechargeable, if you can't drill use the tape that comes in the box (strong), has speaking option, I live in a flat where I have to use digital radio etc as walls block reception but this works well. Save your money and buy this one... would also be great as a baby/pet monitor! Excellent. I just wish it was a little smaller and discreet or came in white but that's not a big deal.
I didnt like that you got to make a payment to make the video doorbell witch wasent explaind ive been in hospital for two weeks so i didnt have time to see how long i had to make my mind up if i wanted them i just got out of hospital on friday and thats why ive contacted yous as what can i do with them when they arent what i thought they were im so sorry for all the hassele if i was at home they would have been sent back so please can you conserd a refund as i could use the money towards a new washing machine as its just went and blew and im on a low income right at this moment and i need the machine as i dont keep very good i am very sorry about this but please can you consider me a refund to help me sorry so much teresa ??
I love that I can see who is coming from my bed! It’s easy to install the charge lasts ages and picks up people easily. The app is super easy to install and pair with the device you can look anytime. My favourite thing is watching people and talking to th at the press of a button
Where do I start!? The sensor is too sensitive even on low sensitivity. When the doorbell is triggered either the push notification comes 3 mins later or only comes through if your phone is unlocked. And now it seems like rain has broken it. Considering its an external doorbell it should be waterproof. It coincidentally broke a few days after we could return it. Avoid Avoid Avoid
Arrived today and was securely packed. Easy to connect to wi fi, took me 5 minutes, secured to front door frame and up and running in 10 minutes from start to finish. Picture and video very good. Would thoroughly recommend this product.
The camera itself is fine, however it is _not_ secure. We've had people talking through the camera at us, who weren't in the house, and the recording light has come on even when no recording has been saved.
On one occasion, I got an alert through the app that the doorbell was ringing, but the screenshots were not from my front door - I don't think they were even in the same country!
